Skinny Buffalo Chicken & Rice Casserole

This is a winner in my book. Not only do I love everything that involves buffalo chicken, its so versatile. Eat this as is with a side salad, put it into a tortilla or flatbread, make it into a pizza, calzone filling, dip, enchiladas or taquitos. They options are endless.

This was such a simple meal to put together and tasted amazing! The low carb option is also wonderful. You can definitely sub out for regular rice but I enjoy the cauliflower because you get your veggies in and you don’t really taste it.

Great option for my meal plan people as well. It makes great leftovers and like I said before you can use this for many different types of meals.
